Description

My presentation will aim to give a historical look at how missionary medicine approached the treatment of leprosy in Uganda. I plan to show the ideological forces at play in the decisions that were made by missionaries during this time, as well as how this ideology manifested itself in the treatment of leprosy and the construction of leprosy settlements.
